31. MYSTERY: from panicking to delighting in uncertainty with Ellen May
This episode is a balm for anyone who feels panicked or uncomfortable in the face of uncertainty! Ellen May (aka Magical Ellen) shares a trauma-informed and delightfully quirky approach which is just the medicine for these times. How do we tend to our stress around the unknown? And how does reframing uncertainty into the mystery help us navigate it with delight? We cover why uncertainty can be so scary, the window of tolerance and resilience in the nervous system, the power of receiving support, and nourishing vs. codependent support relationships. Just listening to the way she talks about the unknown is inspiring! The conversation finishes with Ellen’s transmission around enoughness, which is a gentle breeze of relief and permission. Ellen helps her clients navigate big and small life changes, and initiate themselves into their weirdest, wildest dreams. She’s an art therapist and coach, trained in Somatic Experiencing. Mostly she wants people to know, deep in their bones, that they are powerful - and to be able to access that power to create lives that FIT. And the best way she knows to guide people on this journey is to dance with the unknown. She holds up a lantern in the dark, and holds gentle, permissive and highly trauma aware space for seekers who know deep in their bones that there’s more to life than what they’re experiencing, and she helps them heal the hurts that stop them from living their dreams, and create lives that feel like magic.

24. MONEY: a story of self trust, worthiness, agency, and power with Jennifer Jade Merrihue
Jennifer Jade Merrihue joins me to talk about how our personal money story is also a story of self trust, worthiness, agency, and power. She shares her story of growing up wanting to save the world, and then working seven days a week for $800 a month in the non-profit sector, chronically over-giving in work and relationships until her body burned out. Jennifer Jade also talks about dating money, the tools she used to shift what she describes as abusive relationship dynamics with it, and the big financial risk she took. We cover women’s particular trajectory with money under the patriarchy, from a relatively recent history of being treated like property to our modern goals for financial freedom. I acknowledge that privilege and systemic injustices play a significant role in people’s experiences with money, which is not the focus of this episode, but an important part of the wider conversation. Jennifer Jade is a Sex, Relationship, and Money coach with a background in neuropsych, cognitive behavior therapy, trauma, attachment, kink, and more. She’s committed to helping people leave the lives they hate and create one that they can’t wait to wake up for with ease.

Ever believed something but your body wasn’t on board with it? In this solo episode, from my Pussy Pulpit, I talk about five reasons why your body is your magic wand.

This episode, I’m joined by Ofa Fitzgibbons for a conversation on aliveness, and the gifts of experiencing both pleasure and grief in your body. You’ll hear why Ofa calls herself a coach for misfit women, and her life experience in rebelling against the norms of her childhood after growing up in a traditional Christian household. We have a rich conversation on pleasure, including making pleasure simple and accessible, and our personal journeys towards owning our sexual nature when pleasure wasn’t on the radar. As a new mum, Ofa shares her favourite pleasure hacks of life-affirming, juicy actions for everyday life. Ofa shares her experiences with grief, including the impact of coronavirus on our lives, fertility challenges, changes in her identity since becoming a mum, and the sudden loss of her own mum earlier this year.

18. PERIODS & PLEASURE: Creativity, pleasure, PMS & the four seasons of a menstrual cycle with Claire Baker
This episode, I’m joined by Period Coach Claire Baker for a conversation on menstrual cycles. We talk about the power of working intentionally with your cycle, what characterises each of the four seasons within it, and what pleasure can look like in each phase. The conversation covers: . surges of creativity . the magic in Claire’s new book '50 Things You Need to Know About Periods' . the superpowers and vulnerabilities of each part of the cycle . tips for managing a challenging premenstrual phase . experiencing pleasure in a multitude of ways . relief in understanding that being different from day to day isn’t inconsistency or a failure, it’s the nature of having a cycle! At the time of recording, we were both in our autumn premenstrual phases, and we spend a bit of extra time on this season, with its notorious challenges but also its truth-telling honesty and its gifts! Not all women have menstrual cycles, and not all people who experience menstrual cycles are women.

17. PUSSY: Who the bloody hell is Pussy and why should I care? with Belinda Wiley
This episode is all about pussies for people who have them! Who the bloody hell is Pussy and why should I care? Why do you use *that* word? I asked my fabulous friend, Sex and Relationship Coach Belinda Wiley, to join me for this one because of the way she embodies her own pleasure and her connection to her own pussy. We talk about pussy both in terms of relationship to the physical genitals, as well as the emotional, energetic, and spiritual experience of pussy. We cover: . Feeling repulsed by “that* word and uncomfortable saying it . What happens in your life when you connect to pussy . Relating to “down there” as being clinical and functional, and not being aware of our own anatomy . Shame and secretiveness associated with self pleasure . How our personal relationships to our own pussies have changed over time . Feeling unhappy with the way your vulva looks . Pussy as a source of wisdom, pleasure, nourishment, and aliveness . A few simple ways to reconnect to this part of you Belinda and I are both speaking from our experiences as cis-gendered, heterosexual, able-bodied, white women. Pussy might mean something completely different to you than it does to us, or this conversation might resonate and reawaken something inside you. Belinda Wiley is a Sex and Relationship Coach. She is passionate about supporting women who are feeling dull and deprived in their relationships, coaching them into feeling radiant and sexually alive.

15. TURN ON: Libido vampires and how to vanquish them from my Pussy Pulpit
This is my first “Pussy Pulpit” episode, speaking straight from my heart, womb, and pussy to you. Five years ago I was stuck by default in a life that felt dull and lifeless. I felt tamed! Imprisoned by a white-goods marriage, and stuck in a web of unworthiness. I remember aching for a higher libido (any libido), and I’d read endless articles about orgasms, spicing things up in the bedroom, and creating desire. Now, I’ve set that life on fire...now I feel alive, and I know a few things about vanquishing the libido vampires! In this episode we’re going to dive from the pulpit into desire and pleasure (my new favourite subjects) and I’m going to lean on my experience to help you create your own map to a turned on life. Pleasure and living a turned on life are your birthright, and are a natural part of our design as human beings. Libido vampires are like the party guests we never invited. Let me share how to spot them and some of my personal experiences from when my desire has been lower. In particular, if you sense your experiences around sex have been influenced by religious or cultural conditioning, you will find this helpful. Here’s to your erotic life force and your sexual healing! The book I mention is Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski, which I highly recommend if you have a pussy or have been socialised as a girl and a woman. Discover Vagina Bat and connect with me on Instagram here: www.instagram.com/carolannealive I work one on one with my clients to support them in reclaiming their sexuality and the pleasure which is their birthright.

13. SEASONS: Navigating life seasons and cycles with Ellen May
My friend Ellen May and I talk about life seasons and cycles, how to recognise them, and how to navigate them for more ease and richness. We both live in Australia, where the weather is transitioning into autumn and the descent into winter, but we also talk about how autumn and winter apply to societal changes we’re experiencing right now with isolation measures and staying at home. Our conversation includes: Seasons and cycles as a framework for understanding energy and life The relevance of seasons to life experiences, menstrual cycles, healing, and growth What nature shows us about seasons and cycles, and how it reminds us that we are nature How to recognise which season you’re in, and how you can get stuck in a particular season How winter can be particularly challenging, how to recognise the value it offers and start to embrace it Our personal struggles with trying to “do” surrender Ellen May is an art therapist, a coach trained to work with sexuality, love and relationships, and is trained in somatic experiencing. Recently she asked Facebook for three words to describe her, and the top result was overwhelmingly ‘creative’, closely followed by variations on ‘kind/ compassionate/ gentle’, and variations of ‘magical/ adventurous and wise’. She brings creativity, kindness, magic and wisdom to everything she does in this grand adventure called life. She runs workshops and works 1:1 with clients, helping them to draw their own maps to have their dreams be made real in this world. She holds gentle, permissive and highly trauma aware space for seekers who know deep in their bones that there’s more to life than what they’re experiencing, and she helps them find it. She’s on her own grand adventure to find out what it means to be human, and how to have her life feel like a magical fairy tale of wonder and delight in the deep dark woods. You can find Ellen in her Facebook group called The Grand Adventure: https://www.facebook.com/groups/thegrandmagicaladventure That’s also where you can join her online Embodied Seasonal Alchemy workshop, which is taking place on Saturday 18 April or Friday 17 April 2020, depending on your time zone and where you are in the world.

Our conversation covers the spectrum of emotions and ways of relating to them, including: How Bee manages her emotions as a sensitive person who feels things very intensely Tools and practices to process and honour your emotions, including practices which harness the innate wisdom and power of the body The spectrum from repressing your emotions to having a dramatic relationship with them Advanced practices of incorporating pleasure and turn on into emotional processing Processing your emotions with a partner in an intentional container and the three magic words a partner can say to you in the process We also cover how to approach these practices in ways that are safer, more supportive, and trauma aware. We offer lots of permission to take things slowly and go step by step. We also describe how you can recognise when you’re at your edge so that you don’t push past your own limits. Bee River thrives on integrating shadow and light, and harnessing the meeting points between them into their sweet dance of pleasure, play, and harmony, while savoring all colors of the palette as sacred, and perfect parts of the humxn experience.

10. Coaching Session: Connecting to my yoni and womb
After chemo and early menopause, she is on a journey of reconnecting sexually with herself and her husband. She has tools and practices to work with, but is finding herself stuck behind a brick wall of resistance and frustrated. She wants so dearly to reconnect intimately with her husband but her body freezes up and she finds herself going into hiding. We follow the trail of resistance to grief and sadness, to a sense of barrenness in her pelvis, and into an embodied conversation with her womb and her yoni. It’s a beautiful privilege to listen in as she explores what happens when she brings her focus into her pelvis, and what her womb and yoni have to say to her!

9. Coaching Session: Craving slowness but it doesn't feel safe
She’s going through some big life changes and is feeling a deep pull to rest and integrate. There’s a yearning to slow down and be at the pace of nature. Yet somehow, it doesn’t feel completely safe to slow down. She often finds herself in the mode of “Quick! Get centered!” and an energy of madly trying to keep it together. She also has a realisation that it hasn’t really been safe to be herself. We explore how to cultivate a sense of safety within herself so that she can listen to the messages her body is urgently trying to tell her, without getting overwhelmed by it. Within this container, she experiences what it's like to let her body lead with sound and movement to shift the energy from the physical level. We also play with how to be with the body to let the centeredness organically unfold, rather than making it happen. You may notice some background noise in this episode, providing the real life circumstances to explore what it is to find genuine calm and centeredness amidst the chaos of life.

8. Coaching Session: I feel like I can't say no
In this session, we delve into her desire to feel confident, safe, and empowered to speak her truth in relationships and to maintain strong boundaries. Our exploration begins around all kinds of relationships in which she recognises a pattern of giving everything away, and saying yes even when it doesn’t feel good. We then hone in on a specific situation with a family member, and how to cultivate a strong boundary around how she is spoken to. This episode contains brief mention of going along with things sexually when you don’t really want to, but we do not go into detail about specific situations in this respect. With this and every episode, please choose to listen with respect to what your body is telling you and what feels right for you today.

We explore the ways she can trust herself to choose differently than before, and to stay committed to her power and her truth. She moves from a cautious opening of the door to full excitement, with lightness and laughter along the way.

6. Guided Practice: Digesting Climate Grief
Something different this week: an audio to guide you through a practice of digesting your emotions related to climate change.  This is for you if you've been feeling overwhelmed by the bushfires in Australia, if you feel deep grief and sorrow for the loss of wildlife and bushland and homes and livelihoods, if you feel anger and anxiety and fear around climate change in general. This practice is designed to help you digest your emotions around climate change so that you aren't ruled by them, either in feeling overtaken by them or in trying to manage your life tightly to avoid activating them. It helps to create emotional resilience, so that you can harness the energy and wisdom of your emotions and use that energy in devotion to whatever you choose. Please do this at your own pace and listen to the level your body and your nervous system are ready to go to today. Prioritise staying connected to the sensations in your body and maintaining care for yourself over anything else. The audio also guides you through finding a supportive place in your body or your surroundings where you can rest if the practice starts to feel overwhelming.

5. Coaching Session: Feeling disgusted by my body
She wants to feel like she’s not the only one who hates her body and feels like her body is disgusting and gross. She wants to feel confident and happy in her body, and break the link between what her scales say every morning and her happiness for the day. We explore how much energy is consumed by thinking about her body and food, and what other people might think, as well as camel toe in yoga pants. This conversation covers some painful topics, but there are also moments of laughter. She begins to cultivate more love and tenderness for her younger self who received harmful messages about her body. This episode contains mention of eating disorders and brief mention of suicide. If these topics hit home for you, please discern with your own wisdom whether it’s in service to you to listen.
